Thread Painted Lady Slippers

Walking through the woods in New Hampshire when I was young, I would come upon beautiful pink lady slippers! I was told never pick them because they are rare and it is illegal. That always stayed with me...I know today it is not illegal, and they are not rare, but still a beautiful sight to behold! I still would not pick them and instead leave them for others to enjoy when they venture into the woods!
This is my vision of Lady Slippers made with fabric and thread painted.
